Subaru Impreza WRX Won Fifth ‘Bang For Your Bucks” Performance Car Title in Australia

Subaru wins five Bucks from MOTOR

MOTOR magazine today announced the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Impreza WRX has won Subaru’s fifth Bang For Your Bucks performance car title.

The ultimate test of the best performance cars on sale in Australia saw the Model Year 2009 Impreza WRX triumph against some expensive heavy metal and key competitors.

MOTOR says:

“Proof that the writing was on the wall is that the WRX was more than half a second quicker to 100 km/h than anything else in this year’s BFYB.”

It adds:

“The 2.5 litre boxer feels lustier than any WRX in recent memory. It spools up boost hard and early, delivering a thick 343 Nm of torque right where you need it. No peaks, no troughs, no dramas.”

It continues:

“The time-honoured Subaru chassis balance and adjustability still shine. It’s playful on the throttle and remains an inherently fun car. There’s a bit more purchase with the roadholding, and more purpose in its dynamic abilities. It also runs rings around the Lancer Ralliart.”

MOTOR concludes:

“The WRX put in an emphatic performance, and its victory is well deserved. It’s great to see the legend back in the winners’s circle.”

Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “We’re delighted that Impreza WRX has won back its BFYB crown, its fifth in 12 years.

“Our engineers worked tirelessly to bring the revised MY09 version to the market and its combination of fun, grip and control have been recognised by the judges at MOTOR.”
